The light mood and memorable melodies make “When She’s Walking By Your Side” leave a good, lasting impression of Frank Migliorelli and The Dirt Nappers.

“When She’s Walking By Your Side” is an upbeat song about the feeling of being in love and a girl who makes everything better by just being in your presence. They start off the song by singing , “You can't remember a time/When she wasn't by your side/You can't remember a place/Where you couldn't feel it inside." The chorus delivers a thick power-pop flavor that is exuberant. In "When She's Walking By Your Side, "Frank Migliorelli and The Dirt Nappers" tap into the romantic nostalgia of earlier years when a tune like this would burst onto the radio and go to number 1 complete with screaming fans and it's all about the band's ability to tap into something very simple - " a boy and a girl" who fall in love, the feeling of innocence.
